If he is the most expensive player in the South African Premiership, then Oupla Manyisa should be the highest paid player in the league, right?
It only makes sense that if Orlando Pirates should demand close to R 29 million for a player, then it’s because they sincerely believe firstly that he is that amazing and secondly he is remunerated as such.
It would be a very dodgy thing for acknowledge Manyisa’s worth only when it comes to selling him.
If any other club was to fork out the R 29 million wanted by the Buccaneers, it would make Ace the most expensive player and would break previous transfer fees records.
But it would also mean that whoever buys the midfielder should be willing to sign a R 200 000/month cheque towards the player’s salary. Again, I wonder if that is how much he is getting at Pirates?
